Thank you for your question. There are no adverse interactions with lyrica (pregabalin) and any of your current medications. However, you may be at risk of some common adverse interaction with the current medications you are on. Such side effects include dizziness, nausea, and sudden drops in blood pressure. If you are not being closely monitored by your doctor we recommend that you follow up with your doctor on a regular basis to assess the necessity for taking any of these medications. If it is a possible to be weaned off any of these medications at your doctors discretion, we recommend that you do so as this will greatly reduce your risk of any adverse drug interactions. We wish you a speedy recovery.
